In season one, Katie clashed with Gizelle Bryant. The co-stars argued over race identity and questionable behavior exhibited by Katie throughout the season. Gizelle accused the mother of three of using drugs and slammed her parenting, “If you are concerned about your children’s custody then don’t get on tv drunk and high,” Gizelle tweeted in April.

As fans know, rookie Monique Samuels and Gizelle also feuded in season 2, so when Monique tweeted on August 25, “When people show you their true colors, sometimes it’s best not to argue. Just move on…” and Katie retweeted the post, fans speculated the two might be teamin up against Gizelle in season 3.

As reported, in 2009 Rost secretly married Xavier Eccleston and Katie allegedly had the marriage annulled because Eccleston is “bad news.” Maryland court records and news reports reveal that Eccleston, now 38, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault, and burglary, after shooting an acquaintance, during an October 2001 home invasion. The victim was left paralyzed, and died seven years later.
Eccleston was also accused of stealing a large sum of money and marijuana during the same episode. Eccleston eventually pled guilty to felony assault and weapons charges, and served part of a ten year prison term. Eccleston was later convicted on a charge of “conspiring to distribute powder and crack cocaine.” He was sentenced in January of 2013, to 17 years in prison, and currently resides at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institute, in Maryland.
Katie’s status — full-time housewife or a part-time is unclear as season 3 production is underway and decisions regarding a housewife’s status are made after producers piece together footage.
